The Center was renamed once more in At the dawn of the new millennium the Center became the NASA John H. Glenn Research Center at Lewis Field (GRC) in tribute to Ohio Astronaut and U.S. Senator Glenn, and to Dr. George W. Lewis who foresaw the promise of a landmark research facility. Additional resources about Glenn Research Center. Figure 6 shows the workings of a basic horizontal wind turbine. The blades are connected to a device, known as a governor, which serves two purposes. The first is to adjust the pitch (twist) of the blades to improve performance in varying wind conditions. The second is to control the speed and prevent a dangerous over-speed condition.

Between and , NASA Glenn led the U.S. Wind Energy Program for large wind horizontal-axis turbines -- the predominant systems used today to convert wind energy into mechanical energy. With funding from the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy, NASA constructed and operated its first experimental kilowatt wind.

A major program of research and development projects on wind turbines for generating electricity was conducted at the NASA Lewis Research Center from to Most of these projects were sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), as a major element of its Federal Wind . NASA’s goal was to develop technology for harnessing the wind’s power and to transfer it to private industry. Despite the advances made by the NASA-led program, there were still significant challenges. Wind turbines, especially in high-wind conditions, can routinely stall, limiting the ability of the turbine to produce electricity.

Linscott. The NASA Lewis Research Center manages the large horizontal axis wind turbine program for DOE. The large wind turbine program is directed toward development of the technology for safe, reliable, environmentally acceptable large wind turbines that have the potential to generate a significant amount of electricity at costs competitive with conventional electric generation systems.

Design and engineering development of third generation, Mod-5, machines is underway. Initial experimental operation of Mod-5 is planned for DOE in late or early An overview of these project activities is presented. In addition to these projects, NASA also is conducting research on large horizontal axis wind turbines.

The NASA Lewis Research Center manages for the Department of Energy, the technology and engineering development of large horizontal axis wind turbines. In support of this activity each wind turbine has a variety of information systems used to acquire, process and analyze : Harold E.

As part of the Federal Wind Energy Program of the Department of Energy, NASA Lewis Research Center conducted tests on the DOE/NASA Mod-O horizontal-axis wind turbine with a one-bladed rotor configuration.

The single blade had an overall length of m, and used a pitchable tip that spanned 12 percent of the blade radius. Suggested Citation:"LEWIS RESEARCH CENTER--HISTORY AND CURRENT CAPABILITY." National Research Council.
